So I just got another battleforce for my Tau army, and i was thinking that I might want to arm all or some of the 12 firewarriors with pulse carbines.
I already have 2 squads of 12 with pulse rifles. So I was thinking I could run them as 2 squads of 10 rifles, a squad of 8 rifles, and a squad of 8 with carbines. I could mount the squad of 8 with carbines in a devil fish to make them extra mobile while the other 3 squads form my gun line with 12 kroot in the trees somewhere.
Or should I just go with 3 squads of 12 and use the 3rd squad in a fish of fury arm them with pulse grenades to unload in front of some marines and double tap praying to live through the 2 marines that assault the next turn?
What do you guys think?
P.S. I also run 2 railheads, 2 XV88s, 4-5 XV8s, a pirannha, 8 pathfinders in a devilfish, and depending on points I'll throw in a stealth squad of 3-6
You should instead double the number of Kroot, crisis suits, and piranhas you're using and forget adding any new fire warriors to your army. You need more guns and not more weak cannon fodder.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

NO NO NO NO and of course NOOOOOOOO! carbines are totally worthless, your losing almost half your range (which tau need to clinch to by the way) and 1 shot at double tap so you might pin them. no no no. FoF is what i run but i have never even considered carbines, totally useless, there are to many fearless or ld 10 or 9 units out there for them to be effective.
P.S. NOOOOOOOOO shaper, EVER! your spending 28 points for 1 less wound, 3 less shots (or 6 in double tap), and several less attacks in combat. if you give them a 6+ even worse! shaper= waste of points. also i recommend splitting that 8 man unit of pthfinders to 2, 5 man squads. Ever heard the old saying "putting all your eggs in one basket?" well your doing that there.
